Shopping!

I got to have lunch and play time with my friend, Ann, yesterday. There is nothing I enjoy more than wandering through antique stores and malls. So relaxing and inspiring. I did find a few things I wanted to show you. The 40's floral is to die for and the little scottie fabric is too cute! Paid a lot for it (probably too much), but decided I HAD to have it!

I LOVE those old button cards, too! Look at the colors!! Those were what the salesmen carried to sell buttons with. Have no idea what I'll do with them, but something will come sooner or later.

That's it for today. I might actually get some things listed on Etsy next week! Ya think it's time??!!

Blessings~

Love the vibrant colours in the fabrics. What a find those buttons were. I love vintage buttons- so much more imagination than the modern ones. Going through my Nana's button tin, she could tell me what button had come from what. I loved doing that as a child. :-)
